Stockton Beer Week is back for its 9th season September 10-19, 2021, marking it's triumphant return following a one-year hiatus compliments of the COVID-19 pandemic. Save the dates for Stockton Beer Week and be sure to kick off the festivities with Stockton Brew Fest on Sept. 11.
Usually held every summer that the entire world isn't on pause, Stockton Beer Week celebrates the craft beer culture of the region. This year's celebration is happening September 10 - 19. The event was established in 2011 by Visit Stockton as a way to bring more craft beer to the city, and has evolved to host hundreds of events ranging from beer tastings to beer dinners, trivia nights to beer yoga, and so much more.
Beer enthusiasts can enjoy an array of engaging craft beer events and activities during SBW like tap takeovers, special releases, pub crawls, unique pairings, and more. Be sure to bookmark the official website for the growing list of participating locations and their events. Each year the celebration brings more and more events throughout Stockton to explore.
SBW Venue Registration: Registration is required for businesses in order to participate in SBW. Official registration for all restaurants, pubs, bars, breweries, is due by July 30, 2021. Encourage your favorite location to be part of the largest celebration of craft beer in Stockton, California!
One of the most anticipated parts of SBW is the annual Stockton Brewfest. This year's bash for all things beer is happening Sept. 11 at the Weber Point Events Center. The park-like setting will be filled with regional brewers of craft beers and ciders plus local food, so essentially what you probably picture heaven to look like. There will be unlimited tastings plus live music, games and giveaways, because who doesn't love free stuff?
VIP and General Admission tickets can be purchased online. General Admission tickets are $40 and grant a complimentary tasting glass, unlimited beer tastings from 1 pm to 4 pm and access to all non-alcoholic event activities.
